The AMX-30 served the French Armed forces as its main Battle Tank in the front line from 1966 to 2006, and in other roles it still continues to serve. This book (Volume 2 in the AMX-30 series) concentrates on the later service of the AMX-30. It looks at the modernisation of the tank in the 1980s as the AMX-30B and again in the 1990s with the Brenus AMX-30B2 featuring the addition of the distinctive Explosive Reactive Armour (ERA) blocks to the tank, when it was forced to serve longer than planned due to delays in the the Leclerc MBT.  There are 87 pages in A4 softbound format featuring many photographs a lot of which are in colour. As well as the details of the tank and the upgrades the book features the use of the AMX-30 in the Gulf War of 1991, and the continued use to this day of the tanks in the FORAD (forces adverses) role often painted and modified to resemble potential enemy tanks. Also included is use the AMX-30 by foreign armies such as Venezuela.

Muddy in winter, dusty in summer!

And so is the crew.
